, "that's all right. this is a free market society. america's all about free markets. what's wrong with that? that is a basic american value." >> the marketplace of ideas doesn't give any one, any corporation or any individual the constitutional right to buy an election. i mean, the first amendment is an important part of our constitution, but so is the idea that this is a democracy. this is... no matter this is a society based on the idea of one person, one vote. and our elections should not be marketplaces. they should be about voters. they should be about helping the electorate make an informed decision. and the electorate is not going to be able to make an informed decision if all they can see on the air, if all they can, you know, hear on the radio are, you know, attack ads funded by hidden corporate agendas. >> i would say that it's... we're a society of freedom and markets. and political freedom is so important. political freedom means the freedom to speak and say what you as an individual citizen believe, the freedom to vote. and it means having some power in your society.
